Vegan Rasher Sandwich

Vegan Rasher Sandwich

Most humans like stuff that tastes salty, smoky and slightly fatty, but this doesn’t need to involve meat. The vegan bacons out there each have their particular charm. The most common varieties are the VBites rashers or else tempeh rashers, made by several companies: Impulse; Tofurky and VBites. Whichever type you choose, drizzle with a little soya sauce, put them in nice bread and maybe some brown or tomato sauce; sliced tomatoes… the rest is up to you!

Should you want to experiment and make your own seitan bacon it’s not difficult if you follow our great recipe here

Ingredients

  • 2-3 rashers per sandwich, possibly 3-4 if using tempeh rashers
  • Oil – olive or plain

ALL KITTED OUT: scissors to open the rashers packet; non-stick pan of any type; fish slice or similar; knife to spread everything on the sarnie and chop tomatoes etc

Instructions

  1. Get all the food and equipment out that you are going to use.
  2. Heat the frying pan and add a little oil.
